Workers in five states and the District of Columbia are now able to create and maintain personal accounts and access identity protection features using a new website launched Oct. 6, 2014, by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
The agency is calling myE-Verify a one-stop shop for employees participating in the E-Verify employment eligibility verification process. E-Verify is the free Web-based service run by the Department of Homeland Security and used by nearly 550,000 employers to verify employment eligibility.
“Since its inception, E-Verify has provided employees with valuable online tools and resources regarding the employment eligibility verification process,” said USCIS Director Leon Rodriguez. “myE-Verify signifies a significant step forward for added transparency, features and identity protection.”
The myE-Verify site allows:
myE-Verify accounts and the SSN locking function will initially be accessible to individuals in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Mississippi, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
USCIS plans to eventually roll out myE-Verify across the country.
The Society for Human Resource Management and the Council for Global Immigration recommended in March 2014 that the then-proposed myE-Verify program incorporate multidimensional, knowledge-based authentication technology to safeguard against identity theft. The recommendations were not implemented.
